therefore, it will be third down pittsburgh. >> al: well, as we surmised, no bell. the other backs are felix jones and jonathan dwyer. again, obviously before that situation, so they'll get two cracks at trying to get it into the end zone and still need the two-point conversion. now will johnson the fullback comes into the game as well. >> cris: jonathan dwyer, their leader at running back a year ago. johnson flanked off the bunch. i bet he comes in to block somebody somewhere, though. >> al: johnson number 46 in the right slot. cotchery in motion. and roethlisberger is going to throw and it will be -- dropped at the goal line!
by will johnson. james ihedigbo is there. fourth down. >> al: think it would have been a touchdown had he caught it. he leaned it over the line. james ihedigbo with his second big play and, oh my goodness, it is just a train wreck down here for the steelers now. fernando velasco the center who replaced maurkice pouncey goes down. >> al: you have your starting center, at least tonight's starting sender, your one and two left tackles and your starting running back who will all be out of the game. that's cody wallace who is a tackle by trade and the backup center getting in some snapping practice here because he is going to have to snap it on fourth down. >> cris: take a look and see what happened to fernando velasco.
haloti ngata right here kind of just rolls right back on the back of his leg. wow. >> al: you can't make this stuff up. >> cris: can't disagree with the call. all he has to do is catch it and it's a touchdown. >> al: nope. so they tend to velasco. fourth and goal. velasco back to the goal line. >> cris: you see mike tomlin said take him out. he was trying to determine whether or not he could go back on the field. the last minute he said take him out and so now here we go with cody wallace. you wonder if this limits, does he do shotgun snap well? do they take a snap on the
sideline? so many things come in to play. at this point it's a half a yard. could ben quarterback sneak it. but you have haloti ngata in there. everything is in play here. >> al: it's the longest half yard. 71,000 the defense chants. they have dwyer in the back field next to roethlisberger. you have brown in the slot to the right. you have cotchery wide to the right. roethlisberger fires, touchdown! cotchery, who is his main man in the red zone. cotchery with only 34 receptions coming into the game but 7 of those for touchdowns. >> cris: they switch it off. corey graham thinks he is
supposed to switch this off, this pick. but the inside defender doesn't do it so they end up with a walk-in. so all that mess we just went through and all it did was take time off the clock for the ravens to try to go the other way, assuming they can get this. >> al: two-point conversion. got to pull another one out of a hat. brown on the slot. cotchery wide. wallace with the snap. first one is good this one is good and the pass is hauled in. they're going to say, no, hits the ground. emmanuel sanders couldn't hold on! shocky brown was there with the coverage. so it's an unsuccessful two-point conversion but still an on side kick opportunity for pittsburgh. couldn't hold on. >> cris: had a chance.
it goes right through his arms, so two balls that were definitely catchable didn't work out. >> al: 22-20, obviously an on side kick to come. pittsburgh, of course, in a position where if they can recover it they would have a time-out and then you need a field goal to win the game. let's go to michele. >> michele: well, meanwhile, running back le'veon bell was taken back to the locker room. as you saw, he is being treated for a possible concussion. this is a young man who said it was his dream to play on thanksgiving. he was lit up all week about it. couldn't wait. had a fine performance, but back there being treated far possible concussion now. >> al: thank you, michele. there's velasco.
we saw beachum come out. so evans come out. and now it's off the foot of suisham. >> cris: again, you have to go back to a motion suisham on the kick. i've never seen one botched in that way. >> al: has to go ten yards before pittsburgh can recover. now she going to switch around and kick it off his left foot and it will not go the required distance. he tries to fool them by initially looking he is kicking one way then the other then goes back to the original way and the flag is for the kick being out of bounds and not going ten yards. >> cris: it's interesting that was it an illegal touch by a steeler before it got out of bounds? because it never made it ten
yards. jerrichocotchery on the tail end recovered the ball. >> al: it was off of markus wheaton touched it first. >> referee: illegal touching. 89. first down, baltimore. >> cris: you know, they tried to go the double trick-a-roo. >> al: and the left-footed kick. >> cris: i don't know. not the pittsburgh steelers way, you know? sometimes you can trick yourself into things, but what a football game. i tell you, if they play 16 straight times and they wanted us to do them all, i would do them all. it's a fantastic rivalry. >> al: so nine of the last ten,
if this one holds, 22-20, will be decided by three or fewer points. pittsburgh takes its final time-out. baltimore can end the game on two kneel downs. >> cris: you have to think a little bit about the pittsburgh steelers now moving forward now with the rash of injuries they've got there on that last little series. >> al: they're going to be 5-7. they have three of their last four at home. right now you have denver, new england, indy and cincinnati as the division leaders. kansas city could be the number one wild card at the moment. baltimore would be number two as this game comes to a finish. the others are in a hunt. but a huge win for the baltimore ravens and a bitter loss to the pittsburgh steelers. as they head home and in a week
and a half take on the miami dolphins, while the ravens try to get healthy as well and take on the minnesota vikings here. minnesota at detroit, new england and at cincinnati. as a reminder, remainder of their schedule. john madden, marking his ballots right now. we'll find out who the players are coming up right after these missages from your local nbc staxings.
>> announcer: welcome to the wendy's post game report. here now al michaels kwlanch. >> what a game. ravens win it 22-20. john madden weighed in. he picked two players of the game. one would be jacoby jones. the other would be the kicker justin tucker. they are down there breaking bread with michele. >> it's remarkable that john madden would pick a kicker as a thanksgiving day player. let's be honest, right? you wanted your long snapper and your holder here to feast -- wait a minute. let's cut some food first. each of you grab a leg. we can't talk unnourished. grab a leg. well done. have a bite. take a bite. because we want to get -- no, no, thank you. how is it? good?
>> it's pretty tasty. >> your team just needed you in the right position to make those five field goals. but, you know, you're kind of knew to this rivalry. second-year player. what did it mean to you to have such a big impact on the outcome? >> my mom told me it's rude to chew with my mouthful. story at home. to be able to come through with my team when they need med. that's part of the job description. i'm happy to do it. i wanted morgan and sam here because they're, you know, kind of unsung heroes of the operation. together we get the job done. happy to be of service. >> happy to be of service in another close win. try to keep that under control, jacoby. >> all right. >> all right. so let's talk about that kickoff return. pittsburgh finally scored its first touchdown. you guys come right back with a kickoff return of 73 yards. cortez allen stops you from the touchdown but let's talk about mike tomlin. his foot appeared to be on the
field. how aware were you of him? >> i'm looking at him like, i see him -- i don't know if he knew i was there or what, is he going to move? i got up on him i weaved a little bit and that's how the buddy tackled. i shouldn't have been caught. that was the first time in my life. that's like usain bolt losing a race. >> do you feel like he was pushing you into cortez. >> i probably did the same thing if i knew i was back there. >> so no ill will? >> no. it is what it is. we got the w. that's all that matters. >> big w. this game matters so much in the division standings and where you go from here. what do you take away from this? >> we're moving up. still in the hunt for the playoff. we're 6-6, we're .500. >> looks like you're enjoying that? >> i'm almost finished. >> i'm having a hard time chewing here. >> don't forget, guys, we have
game balls for each of you. you know, we aim to please here at the madden thanksgiving day player of the game. congratulations to both of you. their mouths are full. they're not allowed to talk while they're chew. back to al and cris. >> great, michele. well, the ravens and the steelers, what more can you say? of all the ivalry, it's a street ball, mma, ultimate fighting, we had some squirmishes tonight. it's amazing. >> i thought jacoby jones said it best, i would have done the same thing. that's the nature of this game. everybody tries to take every advantage that you possibly could and it was just a war of attrition. the pittsburgh steelers basically by those final plays were almost out of players. >> the division championship is not out of the mix right now in terms of ravens. >> oh, no. >> cincinnati going to san diego.
they're 7-4 at the moment. if they lose that game all of a sudden it's a new ball game in the afc north. so lot of stuff can happen between now and december 29th. >> and baltimore goes to cincinnati on the final week of the year with a win up. >> crazy. it's the nfl. that's why we love it. and we'll wrap it up on thanksgiving night from baltimore right after this. wendy's bacon portabella melt? you look...different. i had a little work done. new bun? brioche. mmm, that's hot. okay...that was weird. here's yours- i'm gonna take mine and leave you two alone. wendy's bacon portabella melt. a new buttery brioche bun, crisp bacon and rich portabellas in a melty cheddar sauce. now that's better.
